“References… references everywhere…!!”

You gotta love it when you’re watching a particular anime series and they reference a series that you love or have seen before. But how often do you come across an anime series that not only refernces the f**k out of every single series ever made; but also the concept of otaku, anime and manga lifestyles itself?? Well, this series right here just happens to do just that… and oh what a way it does it!

The beauty of this anime is beyond words…

If there is one thing that separates cartoons from anime (and in fact, good anime from bad anime) is the visual effects. Anime is known for not only its stories and art, but its execution and beauty: in other words, eye candy that will get the art-crazy viewers to go absolutely bonkers. And this beautiful anime has certainly succeeded in doing just that.

Dakara Boku wa, Ecchi ga Dekinai. ~ Review

“A wild and wacky world of fantasy and ‘fantasies’!”

If you’re a fan of ecchi genred anime (in which case, I’m assuming you’re either male or just genuinly like the genre), then you know you’re going to love a series that has the word “ecchi” clearly written in the title. Yes, there is ecchi involved in this series, but that’s not the entire picture. In fact, this series is awesome for its story; the ecchi elements and visuals being “a bonus” to loyal viewers such as myself (I’m not going to deny it. I am male after all…)

“A story of friendship, unforgettable romance and forbidden love”

This is another one of those romance/drama anime’s that pop up every now and then. Some are famous and loved by many, whilst some require you to do a little searching down under to find; this anime is one of those anime’s. There is an obvious gap between those that like and enjoy the series while there are those that dislike the series. Of course, everybody has their own opinion on whether the series is good or not; that’s the point of writing anime reviews. So, is this worth watching or worth ignoring? Let’s find out.

Baka To Test To Shoukanjyuu ~ Review

“A hilarious mix of stupidness, cuteness and overall awesomeness!”

This anime is a one that I have been leaving for a while now; not because I didn’t really want to watch it, but because I forget all about it. And I’m quite glad that I remembered again because this series was a lot better than I expected it to be.

Baka To Test To Shoukanjyuu revolves around Akihisa Yoshii, known as the idiot (or “baka”) of the title, who attends a school that is quite different from your average school. In this school, classes are separated based on the basis of academic levels ranging from highest to lowest between class A to F. Akihisa being the idiot, is in class F along with a whole bunch of friends. During the separation test at the start of the year, Mizuki Himeji becomes sick and is unfortunately struck into the F class (even though she has an A class level). Not only do the standards of classrooms change in each class, but different classes can battle each other in what is called the Summoned Being War, where students summon beings and fight using their academic abilities. The story follows the misadventures of Akihisa and his group of companions from class F to defeat all the classes and reach class A.

The series uses high amounts of parodies and references to other anime series as well as the occasional use of absurdist elements

The story is mostly centralized in the romantic comedy genre, however the series uses a blend of many genres; the most obvious being parody, fantasy, school life and harem. The plot and the overall setting of the world in this anime is also quite unique and doesn’t fail to tickle the beards of gaming fans with the use of the concept of “summoning beasts”. The overall excution os the story and animation is also very well done, Studio Silver Link was in my opinion, the perfect place to get this series animated (Silver Link animated such notable series as , Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and Kokoro Connect). A noteworthy voice actor is Hiro Shimono who plays the voice of Akihisa (famous as the voice or such characters as Hiro Hirono from Ef, Keima Katsuragi from The World God Only Knows and Haruka Kasugano from Yosuga No Sora).

Overall, this series is very enjoyable to watch an will definitely leave you in stitches at the end of each episode. And if you enjoyed this, then you’ll be glad to hear that there is also season 2, which I am still waiting to watch. But b now watching the first season, I will know that next season will be just as great.
